The quiz will take place at the Whissonsett village hall at the end of April and includes a traditional dinner with dessert, followed by the quiz, which organisers describe as “light-hearted”.

To be involved participants can come along in a team of six or they can join a team when they arrive.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 28 and tickets are £8. They are on sale from organisers Sue and Caroline, who can be contacted on 01328 701908 or 01328 700665.

Participants are asked to bring along their own glasses and cutlery.

All proceeds will go towards St Mary’s Church, which is thought to date back to 1250 and is known for its display of an Anglo-Saxon cross, discovered in 1902.

The cross design has been used as the backdrop for the village sign and is believed to be the only one of its kind in the county.
